Giving days — community-wide campaigns to increase giving to local nonprofits — are growing in popularity. This spring, Spokane Washington launches Spokane Gives on April 25 and Seattle will celebrate the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG on May 5. Other communities have United Way or other campaigns. What should nonprofits do to get ready for these fundraising opportunities?
The first thing you should do is register for a free 1-hour webinar I’m hosting via Washington Nonprofits. During this webinar I will walk you through what you should be thinking about one month out, one week out, and right when the campaign is going on. I’ll talk strategy and practical application of that strategy. I’ll help you think about communications, from print to social media.
